The five-year-old Ask gelding Nothin To Ask is offered for sale. Price on application.
A fine, big and sound individual who stands 16.2hh, Nothin To Ask is a very good jumper and an easy ride.
He has run well in some competitive four-year-old maidens on the Irish pointing circuit, notably when taking a creditable fourth at Kirkistown in November. The winner of that race subsequently sold for £60,000 at the Tattersalls Ireland Cheltenham December Sale and is now in training with Colin Tizzard.
Nothin To Ask is out of the Beneficial mare Nothin To Say, who won twice in points and has also produced progeny by Shirocco and Imperial Monarch - as well as a two-year-old full-brother to Nothin To Ask.
Nothin To Say hails from a fine jumping family that traces back to Wither Or Which, winner of the Grade-1 Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival and a Grade-1 placed novice hurdler, plus the top-class Alexander Banquet. He also won the Champion Bumper at the Festival, as well as in Grade-1 company over hurdles, before developing into a top-class dual Grade-1 winning chaser.
The sire Ask is developing into a reliable source of good NH stock, with the Grade-2 placed pair Ask Ben and Buster Valentine, and the Grade-3 placed duo Ask Dillon and Ask Nile among his rapidly growing list of smart progeny.
It is also worth noting that the triple bumper winner Ask A Honey Bee, who ran in the Champion Bumper at the Cheltenham Festival in March, is by Ask and out of a Beneficial mare. Such details bode well for the future prospects of Nothin To Ask.
This is a fine opportunity to purchase a strong and good-looking five-year-old with some encouraging form in the book and a winning pedigree. Interest in his sale is sure to be high; please get in touch for more information.
